Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Interesting story Joe. That's nice to know. Knowing more than one language is always a nice virtue to have.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of the Brazilian Portuguese. It just misrepresent all the Portuguese words, when in fact, Pedro Álvares Cabral, a Portuguese nobleman, military commander, navigator and explorer was the one that discovered and explored Brazil way back in 1500.

Here is a link to the story if anyone is interested: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedro_%C3%81lvares_Cabral

Although it's easier for those who speak English and want to learn Portuguese, because the way it's spoken, is like a mix between English accent and Portuguese words, which makes an interesting combo for a Portuguese ear.

Lathe chucks always have their jaws numbered with the matching number marked on the chuck body. If you look closely on your chuck jaws, you might find it in one of the side slots. On the body, is usually marked on the outside diameter or on the flat spot just above the scroll, under the jaw.

Sometimes, on used chucks, the first tooth of the jaw is broken because someone just tried to chuck something to big for the chuck, so the jaw only engages 1 tooth on the scroll. When reinstalling the jaws, this require some thought to make sure the jaws go in properly.

Another thing I noticed, is that your chuck only have one pinion, hence why it's a bit more consistent. Most 3 jaw chucks have 3 pinions and it's advisable to tighten all three with more or less the same torque, so the part runs concentric.

Here is a diagram of the lathe components so we all can understand each other.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Thanks, Pedro.
That's helpful.


I'm having issues mounting the four jaw, maybe it needs a backing plate?
Just screwed on it's a bit wobbly, but it wasn't really tight, but sort of tight.



Does anyone know what this is on the tree? The fuzzy thing.




My guess naturally, would be alien eggs.

Congrats Mikey. Now on to tackle the real world and I'm sure you will be successful.

Don, I'm always cautious of vines attaching to trees. Around here it's something that makes me break out in a rash if I touch it.

You can see the big vines attached to the tree in this picture with the fuzzy hair like stuff on it. They actually killed this tree. This was taken early spring before the leaves are out. It's several huge poison ivy vines that have been let grow for many years on the back of my property I don't even like getting that close to take a picture.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Those are some huge vines!
I spent about an hour looking at US Govt. sites and many Google links, pictures, descriptions etc. to no avail.


There are dozens of apps that can be used to scan a picture that are offered, just need to find someone to give them a try.
https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/plants...on/id891720914


There is even an app to learn Portuguese in 20 minutes a day!


I also found two of the vines on the ground, they were not as healthy as the one on the tree.

The other end needed this adapter, because I need to have a PRV and there is one leftover [it was the oil filter bypass on the old oil filter can]. It fits like a 14mm banjo bolt.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Congrats Mikey!

Great work Mark. That looks nice.

I've been working on the glands. Started on that side that I could do more operations without flipping the part. Machined all the necessary diameters, M64x1.5 thread, the 30 mm bore and the groove for the thicker O-ring. I'm still missing one groove for a thinner o-ring but that's another story.

I got all 4 glands done on this side. Now I'm just turning a piece of tube that will have a true running face and threads. This will stay always in the lathe, so I just simple thread the gland in, machine, remove and put another in, without having to go to the trouble of indicating each part. This also prevents damage on the part from the chuck jaws if I were to just chuck it directly.

Got the seals ordered yesterday at 3 PM and received them today at 10 AM. Not too bad for a 150 mile journey. Yeah yeah, I know that's nothing for y'all "Muricans" with you're Amazon prime thing

Heck, yeah brother! We love our Prime!
But 3:00 PM to 10:00 AM is Very, Very good service!!
I'm lucky if things get here in "two day delivery" time. Now that they are having some one day delivery items WallyWorld has stepped up to the plate and offers one day deliveries. They even beat the pants off of some of Amazons prices on every day items.
Way to go Wally!!


So where is a finished cylinder??
Waiting on the pictures.


Mark, great work on the adapter/bolt!!
Looking forward to more of your pics too!


I dumped all the rest of my lathe parts and pieces into the rust removing bucket yesterday, off to see what's going on.
